Nigeria submitted its first NDC in 2015 and the revised NDC in 2021. Nigeria recommits to its unconditional contribution of reducing emissions by 20% below the business-as-usual scenario by 2030 and increased its conditional target to 47% reduction in emissions by the same year. In the updated NDC, Nigeria has increased its ambitions with new added sectors including the waste and water sectors, and new gases including short lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). The updated NDC broadens the scope and coverage of the country's climate commitments in the energy and efficiency, agriculture, oil and gas, power, and infrastructure and housing sectors. Nigeria strives to achieve net-zero by 2060.
